2014

.

2013

Though he's officially listed at TE, Charles will be the Bengals' starting fullback, having beaten out John Conner in training camp. Expect just a few token targets in the passing game and little-to-no carries.

2012

A fourth-round pick, Charles is coming off an All-SEC season at Georgia. With Jermaine Gresham in the fold, Charles won't be the starter, but will compete to see the field, while providing the Bengals with solid blocking and receiving.
